Excellent work, all - I've added it to my Kroger spreadsheet.

As of 2021 store #571 is still bannered a Price Rite - for anyone in the know, does that store still operate under Price Rite standards?

I'm not sure how to answer this question. The store runs Smiths ads, bags, receipts, etc. Has for the past 20 years. Really the only thing that says Price Rite is the bottom sign outside (the top sign says Smiths). Within the past couple years, some improvements were made to the store. I suspect the improvements involved bring in used signs that got pulled from other stores in remodels. Prior to that, it basically had a very old Smiths interior that probably dated back to the 70's or 80's and just looked like a very old run down conventional supermarket, not a warehouse store. I was shocked at the condition of this store with that old Smiths interior. Smiths had a lot of run down stores stuck in the 80's or 90's that Kroger never spent any money on until the past 5-10 years; this place took the cake for being run down.

As far as the improvements made recently, the store didn't exactly receive what I'd call a remodel. But it received some paint, some new aisle hangers, they also knocked the walls away from the bakery/deli prep and you can see all of the equipment now.

There are a couple other NM Smiths that received similar "improvements" over the years. Improvements that are clearly not a standard issue remodel but seem to be some trick to use supplies up or move used but newer than what the store had stuff around.

Albuquerque - 111 Coors- this store would be more appropriate to have the Price Rite branding. This is a former Furr's and it seems like it was developed as a halfway Food 4 Less type of place

If it were a Price Rite, then would there have been signficantly different promotional material designed for this store? And I did notice, it was quite bare-looking, not resembling any other Smith's package.

Anywho, he best advice I'd have at this point is that one would need to compare prices with any Smith's stores that have always been regular-branded locations. Also what do the last 2 locations signify?
